The environmentally friendly and safe disposal of ammunition and explosive containing items is becoming increasingly important. We call this process 'demilitarisation' or simply 'demil'. Additionally, other products containing explosives such as airbags and seatbelt tensioners, fireworks and pyrotechnical compositions can be processed in the same way.
Explosives are highly energetic. Why not use the 'stored' energy for the production of electrical power? We currently recycle this energy as part of our operation.

Located in Rothenburg/O.L., Germany, EST is running an unique, state of the art
incineration facility specialising in the environmentally friendly recycling
and disposal of ammunition, explosives, airbag systems and hazardous waste.
The disposal capacity of the facility - working in accordance to national environmental law and international directives - achieves a maximum either 15 tons of propellant or 12 tons of explosives per day. Simultaneously up to 5 tons of ammunition, ammunition components and pyrotechnics can be disposed of in a parallel- operation. The chemical energy of the incineration process is converted by a turbine
and a generator into electric power.
